Quote from ktkenshinxA huge advantage of Mill over Kill Mill is that it doesn't rely on creatures nearly as much. It's just Hedron Crab plus a lot of mill spells, effectively making it a burn deck that attacks on an axis that is not life-based. When possible, I would always want a Modern deck to use as few creatures as possible, just to avoid playing a fair game with decks packing maindeck Pyroclasm and 10+ removal spells. Kill Mill plays too fairly in that regard. Mill, however, does not. That is not to suggest that Kill Mill is bad (I have seen its MTGO performances). But I still think that Traditional Mill would be better over the course of more games or larger events.
Quote from madczarAs a huge mill fan since the original Millstone, I've been looking at this deck list. I like the interactions going on in here. My one problem with it is that I still don't see how you hang on with a bad hand (or a mediocre mull, say). No white splash for PtE? No Dismember? No BSZ? The sideboard has a single Engineered Explosives, Slaughter Pact, and Illness in the Ranks? Seems *very* meta dependant. The Leyline is good, b/c without it we just feed GY based decks.
I'm tempted to -1 Mind Funeral, -1 Crypt Incursion for +2 Dismember, or something like that. Not sure how to change it up.
But I think this is going the right way.
